You need a belt tensioner tool, it's a long flat bar with a 3/8" square drive on the end. Most auto parts stores will have one to borrow.

Insert the tool into the belt tensioner and rotate this will loosen the belt for removal.

Make sure you disconnect the + battery cable before you start working on the alternator.

How do i replace the altenator belt


Take a look at the one that's on there now. You will have to loosen the bolts that keep the alternator from pivoting. There will be one bolt where the alternator contacts the engine and another bolt farther out on the alternator. At that point, there will be a bracket with a groove, and the bolt is in that groove. Loosen the bolt on the engine and then loosen the slider bolt. You should be able to rotate the alternator toward the engine. That will put enough slack into the belt that you can remove it.

Installation is the reverse of removal. Slide the belt into place; lift the alternator to tighten the belt; tighten the bolt on the slider bracket; tighten the bolt on the engine. Check the belt's tightness after a few day because it will stretch and loosen.

How to change alternator belt


Hi there,

Lift the car hood and disconnect the ground cable from the battery´s negative terminal. In the engine compartment, locate the alternator. On top of the alternator you will see a pivot bolt. Use a socket wrench to loosen this bolt, but do not remove it completely.

Locate the alternator belt and loosen it from its pulleys by applying pressure to the alternator and moving it in the direction of the engine. Once the alternator belt is loosened, pull it off from its pulleys.

Install the new alternator belt. It must run around the alternator pulley, the water pump pulley and the alternator pulley. With the new alternator belt in place, adjust it over the pulleys by bringing the alternator back to its original position, away from the engine. Make sure the belt is tight around the pulleys, then tighten the pivot bolt on top of the alternator.

Re-attach the ground cable to the battery and close the car hood.

Hope this helps...

What do I loosen to get 1st belt off so I can change ac belt?


Assuming you're talking about the 22re ... there are tensioners on both the power steering (first) and the a/c belts. Loosen the bolt on the pulley and then the bolt on the side of the tensioner tightens and loosens the belt. You might want to check the inner ... alternator / water pump belt while you're there. No tensioner for this one, you need to loosen the bolt that the alternator pivots on, loosen the bolt on top of the alternator that holds it in place on that bracket and then pry alternator and tighten bolts to hold the tension.
